Im really gutted as was excited when i stumbled accross silverstripe and hoped it was what i had been looking for. I cant even get it to install though unfortunately :(
I am using a linux server .....
PHP5 installed OK (PHP version 5.2.6)
GD2 support OK
XML support OK
MySQL support OK
Memory allocated (PHP config option 'memory_limit') OK (64M)
Check that certain classes haven't been defined by PHP plugins OK
I get the following warnings....
Is the .htaccess file writeable? User 'domain2275394' needs to be able to write to this file:
The file is currently owned by 'root'. There is no user-group that contains both the web-server user and the owner of this file. Change the ownership of the file, create a new group, or temporarily make the file writeable by everyone during the install process.
Server software I can't tell what webserver you are running. Without Apache I can't tell if mod_rewrite is enabled.
mod_rewrite enabled I can't tell whether mod_rewrite is running. You may need to configure a rewriting rule yourself.
1 - i can create an empty text file, set permissions and refresh and warning for this goes away... however i cant shake number 2. when i go through the install it crashes and i get 500 server error, and then blank pages for /admin etc
I am a designer and so am not too clever on stuff beyond css, but have have managed to install other cms that seemed less user friendly before so im really gutted about this.. can anyone tell me what i need to do? is there specific mod rewrite / .htaccess for this cms?
